Track Name: The Journey
Sunrise
Waking up to a new sky
Greet another day
There's one long road ahead

Walking
Bare feet tired and aching
See how far we’ve come
And all the things we've done

Moving forward

Feeling the earth
Let the wind take our doubt

Hope, we go on
One step at a time
We dont know how far we'll go, along the road we'll find a helping hand
We'll keep up
Hope, we go on
One step at a time
Even if the way seems hard, our steadiness will see us to the end

Waking
The world is ours for the taking
We want to feel alive
Until our journey ends
Track Name: Flowerspring
Painting the sky, in your secret room
Painting an eye, painting your own days

You should write a book, you may write a song, with all that poetry under your coat.
First go over the lyrics and then go over the chords, or you can draw the notes before singing the tune.

Heart from the forest, spirit soft as wind
That’s why you blossom like flowers in the spring

You could be a painting, you could be a tale, you could be a movie about balloons and games.
Writing your own story is what makes you glad, leaving back reflections is what makes you sad.

Let me see your drawings, let me read your book, let’s enjoy this life, let me whistle with you.
Would you be so gentle to sit next to me, when would you let me give you a kiss?

Heart from the forest, spirit soft as wind
That’s why you blossom like flowers in the, flowers in the...
Track Name: Rise and Fall
He was a leader on his big parade
rising from the easy to persuade
he was a liar hiding his true aims
soon enough they'd all become his slaves

He was a vulture waiting for his prey
they thought that everything would be ok
he was a tyrant stepping on the hopes
of all the people that he'd soon betray

Hungry for power
climbing to the top
his head was on fire
and he would never stop

He was a victim of his own greed
in time the revolution would succeed
he was a leader with a rope around his neck
and with his fall his people were all freed

hungry for power
climbing to the top
his head was on fire
and he would never stop
Track Name: Breaking the Silence
Spent my days in a windowless room
Made friends with the dark
But even in nothingness I felt alive

So I sheltered myself in the words
that never came out
Torn between hiding away and screaming out loud

Breaking the silence
Not afraid of the shame in defeat
On this day I declare that I’m free
I'll embrace what tomorrow may bring

All walls that I thought I'd bring down
have proven so tough
At least I can say that I’m still pushing on

Many times did I stray from the path
but I kept my sight
I see my old footsteps reminding me, callling me back

Breaking the silence
Not afraid of the shame in defeat
On this day I declare that I’m free
I'll embrace what tomorrow may bring

Hold on
How long
Stranded in this place
Will I find my way?
Hold on
I still believe
that I’ll find my way

Breaking the silence
Not afraid of the shame in defeat
On this day I declare that I’m free
I'll embrace what tomorrow may bring
After all of these years I will heal
Track Name: Under the Pink Moon
Under the pink moon you placed your heart and soul
Throughout your lifetime you always missed your goal

Gentle feelings, subtle verses, soothing voice
Everlasting, timeless music, sounds of old
With commitment and ambition, in your shell
Rising talent, brief creation, works of gold

Someday they will love what you’ve done
Someday they will know that you’re gone

Enigmatic, melancholic, broken life
Distant hero, fearful poet, no escape
Inattentive, selfish dreamer, silver spoon
Hopeless promise, never noticed, death foretold

Someday they will love what you’ve done
Someday they will know that you’re gone

Your life unnoticed retreating to your hole
Throughout your lifetime you always missed your goal
Track Name: Mind Trip
Floating spaceships in the night sky, trying to reach them with my hands
Sirens following behind, driving far away from home
Falling through an endless dark hole, there’s no way that you can stop
Feel the need to scream out loud, but you can’t open your mouth

I’m I dreaming? Are these whispers of my past?
Should I fear them? Should I close this open door?
I’m I wishing for the things that I don’t have?
Should I stay here? Should I try to wake up now


Standing naked in the classroom, It’s not funny anymore
Slowly learning how to fly, barely taking off the ground


I’m I dreaming? Are these whispers of my past?
Should I fear them? Should I close this open door?
I’m I wishing for the things that I don’t have?
Should I stay here? Should I try to wake up now

There are nights when I’m afraid that my dreams might come true

Hello. I don’t know where I’m going
Goodbye. As I’m opening my eyes.
